World number seven Anna Chakvetadze is the sixth player to qualify for the season-ending Championships, which will take place in Madrid, Spain from November 6-11. This great achievement was expected from the Russian taking into account her fantastic 2007 season in which she won four singles titles (Hobart, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Cincinnati, Stanford).
“I’m so excited to play in my first Sony Ericsson Championships,” said Chakvetadze. “I love the beautiful city of Madrid and I’m hoping to perform very well. This has been an amazing year for me, having reached the Top 5 in the world, and I am looking forward to finishing strongly in Madrid.”
Two more players can qualify for the Sony Ericsson Championships and join Justine Henin, Jelena Jankovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Ana Ivanovic, Serena Williams, and Anna Chakvetadze. Those two players will probably be Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova.
